Hi Carl,

You will want to connect via the console and use the CLI, as if you use the GUI when you change the spefics ie inside ip address etc, you will most likely lose your connection, assuming your internal lan uses a different number scheme than then asa default. (192.168.1.0/24)

Check out the below for info on configuring device;

You will be interested in the getting started section, initially.
